11. Manual Pinsetter
Before the invention of mechanical pinsetter, there was a person who would reset the bowling pins into their correct positions. Often the pinsetters were young boys hence the job was commonly called pinboys. Job of a pinsetter was not a high paying one. Many students or youngsters looking for part-time work often signed up.
With the invention of mechanical pinsetters, a manual pinsetters is not required. However, this role didn’t go completely obsolete. There is still a requirement for human presence near pins. A “pinchaser” is placed near the machine to make sure that it is cleaned properly and there are no jams during the process.
